From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I strongly disagree with the bureaucratic plan for the "Reinvention of Journalism". Such governmnet control of "free" speech would be the end of free speech when the government controls, promotes, punishes, rewards or otherwise influences who and what is allowed to be prominent or hindered in the dissemination of information to the public. The intended or unintended consequenses would be horrendous.
